What Causes Epilepsy?
Different types of epilepsy are caused due to different reasons. Among the many types of epilepsy that affect people include genetic and inherited epilepsy. Some other forms of epilepsy are caused due to injury to the brain, such as trauma to the head, and oxygen deprivation to the brain at birth. While the causes for other types of epilepsy remain unknown. However, with expert diagnosis and assessment of your medical condition the team at Advanced Neuro and Spine Institute can help you control epileptic seizures and in some cases prevent an epileptic seizure.
Symptoms of Epilepsy
Seizures are perhaps the only visible symptom of epilepsy. Seizures or fits can attack the person suddenly. However, the type of seizure can vary from person to person, both in terms of duration and the intensity. In some people seizures cause the person to fall on the ground and stiffen or jerk the muscles, while in some the reactions aren’t so clearly visible. Some people experiencing a fit may simply stare into space, while some also experience muscle twitches and confusion. In extreme cases, the person may lose consciousness.
Don’t let the sudden epileptic seizures cripple you and leave you in a helpless state. Contact our team of experts to learn more about the treatment and prevention of epilepsy.
